Her international breakthrough came in 1985 when she played the main character in Sans toit ni loi (Vagabond), directed by Agnès Varda, for which she won her second César Award. She portrays a vagrant who fails both physically and morally. The film premiered at the 42nd Venice International Film Festival where it won the Golden Lion prize. The jury deemed Bonnaire's performance as amongst the best of the year, but decided against awarding the Volpi Cup for Best Actress prize because both of the actresses they judged to have given the best performances were in films that won major awards.
